Avalon Ballroom 5/12-13/67
A beautiful design by Victor Moscoso, this poster advertised a show with The Doors at the Avalon Ballroom.
The original poster was printed on white index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 20″. Original posters have a ⅛″ wide band of slightly darker blue that runs just below the lowest pink border. This band is most visible above the “S” in “outlets” and runs to the left edge of the paper. There is also a small dot immediately left of the “m” in “Moscoso,” but this dot also appears on the second print, so it cannot be used by itself to identify an original.
The second print poster was printed on white index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 20″. The blue band described under the original poster is not present, but the dot is.
Another reprint was printed on white stock and measures approximately 14″ x 20″. The reprint does not have the dot or the band described under the original poster.
The postcards come in several varieties, all of which measure approximately 5″ x 7″. Each of the three versions below comes both with and without the band described under the original poster:
The Type A card has a “place stamp here” reverse.
The Type B card has a bulk rate permit on the back.
The Type C card has a bulk rate permit on the back and was mechanically addressed and sent to people on the Family Dog mailing list.
